Slouching Tigers, Mumbling Dragons - II

I'd earlier posted on how some authors make for some really tough reading.Today, I was reading Robert Faggen's introduction to Ken Kesey's One flew over the cuckoo's nest, and he managed to come up with this:

Nature may be cruel but it allows mode latitude than the monotony of a system that discards everything that cannot be made to conform to its monolithic dream of success. Kesey battles against monotony and against those who attempt to schematize and subordinate the wildness and unpredictability of the human spirit.

Why, oh why? That too in the introduction itself? :(

No matter what others say, I think it is still interesting and useful maybe necessary to improve some minor things
